A History of The American Indian Boarding Schools

Date and Time: September 26, 2022, 7:00 PM CT

Location: Olathe Public Library Indian Creek Branch, 16100 W 135th St, Olathe
(view on google maps)

Renewed calls for investigations into the abuses to American Indian children have brought new scrutiny to the boarding school system. This talk will examine the thinking behind the creation of federal schools for youth including Haskell Indian Nations University, originally known as the United States Indian Industrial Training School, and how this system affected Native communities in the short and long term. The American Indian story is one of cultural survival, but what are the next steps for reckoning with this difficult and painful part of our national history? Presented by Eric Anderson.
